Steve Irwin's son 'honoured' to walk his sister down the aisle

''The Crocodile Hunter", Steve Irwin's son, Robert, has spoken about walking his sister, Bindi, down the aisle on her wedding day.

The 21-year-old announced earlier this year that she would be tying the knot with her childhood boyfriend, Chandler Powell, in July. The nuptials are due to take place in Australia zoo, where the happy couple met six years ago while Chandler was touring the country.

Bindi recently took to Twitter to share a picture of her wedding dress, and her 15-year-old brother took to the comments to write, "Can't wait to walk you down the aisle."

Now, he has spoken to PEOPLE about his sister's upcoming wedding. "Oh, I was just so so stoked. I was so excited and really honoured for her to ask me to walk her down the aisle," he said.

"I think it's going to be such a wonderful day, such a great celebration. Chandler is absolutely perfect. I can't fault him, he's awesome."

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Bindi corroborated: "It'll be really important that Robert walks me down the aisle. I'm always so grateful that Robert is there, and he has been such a big part of my life and he's always stepped up and been the one to give me a hug when I need it and encourage me forward in life. So he will definitely be the one to walk me down the aisle when the time comes, and I think that will make it really special."

The wedding will take place in Australia zoo which was made famous by her father Steve, who tragically passed away in 2006.

And Bindi recently posted a moving picture to Instagram, which was captioned "Dad, You would be so incredibly proud of Robert."

"He has been such an amazing support during this beautiful new life chapter. I know you'd be beaming with pride when the time comes that he walks me down the aisle. I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us."
